Warm place to stay

The owner is such a sweet and helpful lady, and makes it easy for you to explore Kyoto. Breakfast area converts to a quiet restaurant, so enjoy a dinner here and try the shochu.

Pros: Stayed in the traditional tatami room, comfortable and clean. Wonderful 2nd floor rec-room/kitchenette. Balcony with view of 1 of the fire mountains.

Cons: The smell of the tatami was strong so had to keep the balcony door open.

Location: Easy access to all areas by bus (the main crossing for many bus lines is 2 min.), many restaurants around (including Indian).
